in the economy now, so the banks really have extended all the courtesy to kind of educate the consumer, unlike before. > what about banks? are banks still tight with lending? > > it is a little difficult to get a home loan. but, the good news is that the rules and regulations are very clear. so it's either you qualify, or you don't qualify. so, you're not kind of disenchanted with the process, where you get started and then midway or toward the tail-end you don't get approved. it is kind of like an instant no or an instant yes. so really, whereas before a typical home buyer would take about three years from the time they thought about buying and shopped around for three years before they executed a transaction, now it is taking six months to one year. > what are some upcoming concerns for the housing market? what concerns me is the false hope of short sales. there was a big boom in the short sale industry last year. that really slowed down to a crawl, because there are some people who can't even afford to short-sell, or are not in a position to short- sell. so it was kind of like false hope. s

government collects, leaving nothing for education, national defense, or other essential programs. we have no illusion that putting our country on a sound and responsible fiscal course will be easy. it clearly will not. our government is divided and conflicted because the american people are divided and conflicted. but we cannot ignore this crisis any longer. nor can our leaders. as important as economic growth is, we can't grow our way out of this problem, and we certainly can't tax our way out. what we must address is the fundamental reality that due to our aging society, and increased life expectancy, the entitlement programs written and designed for an earlier era must be revised. we are not talking about cuts in absolute terms. we are simply talking about slowing the rate of increase, and this can be achieved with reasonable adjustment phased in over a number of years. comprehensive tax reform is another essential part of the solution to our fiscal crisis. the right kind of tax reform will make us more competitive across the globe, and empower our businesses, small and large, here at
